Emptywheel Friday with Marcy Wheeler on the Nicole Sandler Show – SCOTUS Screwed Us Edition 4-26-24

   Each Friday, Marcy Wheeler takes a break from writing at emptywheel.net to join me for a conversation about what happened that week. This week was insane, and ended at the Supreme Extreme Court. That hearing consumed much of today's show, with a few minutes at the end dealing with Trump's current criminal trial, underway in Manhattan.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZ3LJJ0rcyA

Thursday w/SCOTUS, AZ, FCC, FTC, TFG & Howie Klein on the Nicole Sandler Show 4-25-24

   It's a Thursday, so we have a date with Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny & the Blue America PAC. It's not like there's a shortage of things to discuss... in fact, too much news for a one-hour show. There was the SCOTUS hearing this morning on Trump's ridiculous concept of absolute immunity (but there are some ridiculous people sitting on that extreme bench these days), the were 3 members of the AZ Republican House voting with all the Dems to kill the 1864 abortion ban (now goes to the senate and then the governor?). The FCC restored [...]

Wednesday Wisdom with Digby on the Nicole Sandler Show 3-13-24

     Because sometimes you just need to sit with a brilliant friend and shoot the shit about all the craziness in our world. That's how I approach the shows when Heather "Digby" Parton is our guest. Digby is, of course, one of the OG bloggers of progressive politics. Her Hullabaloo blog is still a daily must-read, as are her columns at Salon.com. I love it when Digby is my guest because I truly adore her and love our conversations, which can go in any direction. We never know where it'll go until the interview progresses. Too bad there's [...]

It’s Emptywheel Friday on the Nicole Sandler Show 3-1-24

   Friday was always my favorite day of the week, and now even more so since we started spending Friday's shows with Marcy Wheeler of emptywheel.net. Having a tough time keeping all of the Trump trials straight? Somehow, Marcy stays on top of it all. Each week she answers whatever questions I throw at her, and she does it without consulting notes or quick searches. She just covers it all and somehow is able to speak off the cuff about it. Today, we'll talk about the Supreme Court's decision to take up TFG's immunity defense, Hunter Biden's closed door [...]

Leap Day Thursday with Howie Klein (the buh bye Moscow Mitch edition) – Nicole Sandler Show 2-29-24

       Big news broke yesterday while we were on the air - and I missed it! I didn't see that the Supreme Court finally announced their decision to hear TFG's appeal regarding his ridiculous claims of absolute immunity. So we'll deal with that at the start of the show - and really get into it on Friday's show when Marcy Wheeler is here. The other big news from yesterday was Mitch McConnell's announcement that he'll step down as Senate Minority Leader in November (but will remain in his senate seat). That's something we'll discuss with Howie Klein [...]

Justice or Injustice with Lisa Graves – Nicole Sandler Show 2-20-24

     I had hoped that the Supreme Court would have handed down its decision on Trump's move to appeal the DC Circuit court's ruling that he has some made-up 'absolute immunity' from virtually any crime because he once occupied the Oval Office, but no such luck. Perhaps tomorrow when at least one decision from the Extreme Justices is expected. Regardless, Lisa Graves returns to the show today in her capacity as a private citizen who happens to have impeccable legal bona fides (just check out her bio at truenorthresearch.org). I'll get her thoughts on when, and how the [...]

8-11-23 Nicole Sandler Show – Supreme Injustice and Trump’s Troubles Too with Lisa Graves

View on Zencastr August is supposed to be the slow news month, and Fridays in August non-eventful. But nothing is normal these days. Lots of news broke today, most of it dealing with the myriad of legal cases brewing in and around Washington DC. Thankfully Lisa Graves is here today to help us dissect it all. Lisa's got the bona fides too... She's worked for the Senate Judiciary Committee and in the DOJ! She was Deputy Assistant Attorney General in both the Clinton and W Bush administrations, and these days exposes the bad guys as she heads up True [...]

6-29-23 Nicole Sandler Show – SCOTUS Strikes Again Thursday with Howie Klein

View on Zencastr We expected it, but that doesn't make the fact that the Extreme Court today basically killed off Affirmative Action in college admissions, with ramifications that likely go even further. This term of the court officially ends tomorrow, while there are still 5 decisions left. Lisa Graves returns to the show tomorrow to help us try to make sense of what they do... and what they did today. But today is Thursday, so Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC is here. There's lots to talk about, and I'm guessing he'll have a [...]
